    Well it is done, I joined the "fog-light club"
    Had to do some "accomodation" but they are working now!

    but I have 3 screws over, well can't be that important right? :lol3

    Mc Gyver style: I cut too much cable off so I had to open a powerstrip and take some wiring out. Well the result is there:

    Bought a Rally seat on ebay, hoping for an improvement over the regular seat. Sat on one at the dealer, liked what I felt. Tired of getting pushed into the airbox.

    I like it much better than the standard seat. Can't say it feels any different in the foam/softness of it but the shape of it is much improved.

    I also replaced the left heated grip, which was ruined an not heating because I knicked element trying to get rid of the sh*tty stock grips. Then I successfully cut off the stock grip from the new one, and mounted Renthals. :clap

    Oh... and I test fit my GL bag, because I'd never done it before, and figured I should start now instead of the day I'm trying to leave :huh

    The painted windscreen is done. Not sure about white. I ordred a shorter screen from That Other Bike, might just use that instead, or chop the white one down, or... :scratch

    I still have to paint the tool tube mounts, then I think I'm ready for Death Valley... unless my XM antenna gets here before I leave. :rofl

    My evil twin finally came back to me! After 6 whole months of waiting. Installed all my parts as soon as I got her home...

    And received the "you package has shipped" email from Woody's. Had him work his bearing magic and seal the rim while he was at it. :D

    And it snowed....:dog

    My F800GS has gotten some surgery done at hyperpro :clap. Bas at Hyperpro is an awesome guy, fixed it up faster than i could have done. Unfortunatly he did find a couple of things like shot head bearing and shot front wheel bearings. One thing was weird though, looks like my axle end bolt was never installed :eek1, Bas said i might have lost it recently but i looked at some old video's and photo's i have and there is no bolt in any of them, since it left the dealers.

    I dropped it on the pavement! Brand new bike!!! I went to rock it off the center stand and my foot slipped in the gravel and it fell over... I don't have crash bars either. Surprisingly, there was not a single scratch anywhere... close call.

    Just ordered an Elka Stage 4 rear shock.... I missed out on the group buy for them, but they just lowered the price of this shock from $1245 to $995, pretty good deal if you missed out and want/need a new rear shock!
